Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
While I don't doubt this is from her mother in law in Canada, it is just the recipe from the back of the Purity cornmeal bag (the most common brand of cornmeal here in Canada). The only thing different is this recipe uses half the baking powder stated on the bag, and it says to leave it soak for 10 minutes. I use this recipe (with the extra baking powder) all the time, and usually buy my cornmeal bulk, so I refer to this site to get the recipe. I always half the recipe to make 12 cornmeal muffins or 2 mini loaves, since it doesn't really keep. Also, you can substitute almond or soy milk just fine in this recipe, and add a lot less sugar or use honey if you want, or whole wheat flour works fine too.

Indian Saag

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Oh yum! I made this tonight with 1 big bunch of kale and 1 big bunch of chard (11 oz total). Honestly, I didn't measure the spices very carefully ! I used way more cumin seeds by accident. I have a favorite premade (in a can) saag I really like, but this is better! I always thought this would be a difficult dish to make, so always bought the cans, but it is not. I am so glad I found this recipe. I love greens, but sometimes we get so much in our weekly organic basket that I need other recipes to use them.

Greek Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
I have also had this recipe printed out for years but have never reviewed. Great, simple recipe. I do find it makes an awful lot though- I always half the recipe and it is enough for us ( 2 adults and a preschooler) with a substantial lunch for my husband left over. I served this last night with steamed green beans. I am jealous of my husband's lunch in the fridge :)

Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
I skip the blueberries and use these as a base for a more savoury breakfast. They are quite good. You can sub part of the ww flour for white and get a poofier pancake. My preschooler loves them too (maple syrup and fruit on his portion, mushrooms and onions on ours)

Sunflower Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I must come back and add a 5 star rating as I make this recipe ALL THE TIME! It has replaced the Caesar Salad I used to always make on pizza night! I usually make lots of it- 5 or 6 cups of broccoli- so there's some for lunches. The recipe is great as written, but I like to add lots of extra sunflower seeds because I like them, and have added a bit of other vegetables- shredded kale, or grated carrots are good. Also, I skip the bacon sometimes. The bacon really makes the flavour, but let's admit it- bacon is really not that good for you. I do add a bit of salt if I skip the bacon. Yum yum.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
I would have to add my 5 star rating, if it ever gets read! With every other oatmeal cookie recipe I have tried the cookies spread out so much on my stoneware baking pans. Not, these, they really keep a nice shape. They also use less sugar than other recipes, which lets you enjoy the flavour rather than just the sweet. I like to make these with Earth Balance "vegan buttery sticks" as I often bake for someone with a dairy allergy, and I use 100% whole wheat flour instead of the white. I do add a teeny bit more baking soda but not sure if this is necessary. Also, I find they take 12-13 minutes on my stoneware pans. And it makes about 5 dozen cookies with my 1 tablespoon dough scoop thingy. YUM YUM!! Edit:I usually only use 1/4 cup of super packed brown sugar. An I use chocolate chips!

Hearty Halibut Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This was my first attempt at fish chowder and it turned out great! I did not modify the ingredient list at all although I did use only half the amount of fish and only 1 litre of broth (because I only had a pound of fish and a litre of broth!). It is a very good recipe and I think I may change a few things next time like add some celery or maybe corn or different fish or...... but it is just great how it is too.

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I first tried this recipe from allrecipes about 9 years ago when cooking my first big Christmas dinner. It is so tasty, and easy that I have never "branched out" into other types. I still use this same recipe! Now I use brown bread or my own homemade multigrain, I have used it in the bird and baked it in a casserole, I have used vegetable broth instead of chicken for a vegetarian friend, etc! It is an easy and versatile recipe that I have used many many times over the years.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Dijon Yogurt Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
This is a quick, simple and very tasty recipe! I was out of mayo, and too lazy to make more, but wanted something creamy. This fit the bill perfectly! We're having it on roast chicken on greens with home made cheese buns. Yum!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2001
I make these all the time, they are so easy and yummy. I often use whole wheat flour, brown sugar or honey, and replace the oil with applesauce. I also like to add a handful of dried cranberries. Added note: 7 7ears later and I am still baking this recipe all the time! There are some in the oven right now. Must be a good one!

Baked Rice and Vegetables in Broth

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2001
I thought this was a tasty way to make rice. I put in way more veggies than stated, and added them later, after the rice had started to cook (so they wouldn't get too mushyI I also added fresh, chopped parsley. But I thought the combination of veggies was a good one. Serve with fish and a simple salad

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2001
I make this recipe with water instead of the melted butter, this way you get lots of yummy sauce. I found I didn't like the consistency when I made it with the oil. This has become a regular at my house. Good to use chicken thighs or firm tofu

Cabbage, Potato and Baked Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2001
Well, I was surfing for cabbage recipes- cabbage is cheap and I am broke. I was skeptical about this recipe but had all the ingredients on hand so what the heck? I was surprised- this soup is rather quite yummy and rich tasting. And considering it cost about $2 to make well worth it. I will make it again. I would recommend using a low sodim broth, it came out a bit salty.

Aunt Mary's Vanilla Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2001
YUMMY! A very nice, simple fluffy icing thatis sort of like "Dream Whip" without the yukky chemicals. Pay no heed to the bad reviews below, these people probably didn't use an ELECTRIC MIXER to make it, and so wound up with a soupy mess. But really, it is great. The recipe should mention that you need to use an electric mixer. I'm going to try it with a bit of lemon next time.

Lemon Cilantro Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2001
Should've listened to the reviews...... I really like lemony, cilantro recipes but thought this was way to strong, and the flavours did not blend together at all. Also the potatoes took way linger to cook than indicated in the recipe! One star here, sorry.

Curried Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2001
This recipe is quick and yummy. I used water instead of broth (didn't have any), instead added some chopped fresh ginger when it was simmering, and stirred in some fresh cilantro at the end. Also , instead of the water at the end, I stirred a few tbs of rice milk into each serving. Made it nice and creamy. A good basic soup that you can play with to suit your tastes. Thanks!

Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2000
I first got this recipe from cookierecipe.com for Christmas '98 so this was the third year I made them. They are great, not too sweet. Chocolate and orange is my mom's favorite!
